This Custom Leia Berry Organic doll is the newest member of my little Star Berries World. I had no idea how I was going to pull her off. I just knew that I wanted to create her with the buns and would not accept "it's not possible to do that" for an answer. I had to do a bunch of research about her outfit. I created patterns from scratch for her Dress , Hood ,Belt and Boots. Not to mention the hours it took to get her hair buns to look "Just So". Major mission indeed ! The photo shoot was so much fun. I was able to try some new ideas with backgrounds and lighting. I took a few snap shots of my early attempts of working out her hair cinnamon buns style. I have added the images below. You can imagine how much fun it must have been for dear late Carrie Fisher to have to come into work 2 hours early just to style her hair. It took me much longer,lol. You can get a human to cooperate for a hair-do, but dollies are a bit more fussy because they won't sit still when you need them too, LOL. True Story. But we worked things out. I promised her I would make her look fabulous and eventually she did.....
This cute little guy was inspired by my desire to see more boys in Strawberryland. After Plum was changed into a girl we were left with only dear Huckleberry. He needs some pals to hang out with. This is where the boy version of T.N. Honey came to mind. I have plans to make the other Strawberryland characters into boy versions as well. One by one. I'm not replacing the girls with boys though. I am just making a boy version of each character. This is an idea I have had for so many years. I'm so glad to finally have the time to make it happen at last. Hope you like my take on what a boy T.N. Honey might look like. I may create more of T.N. Honey as a boy with different variations of hats and outfits. This can get super fun and creative. Thanks for coming along for the ride <3...

Custom Plum Puddin" Boy doll based on the Illustrations in the Vintage book "The Adventures of Strawberry Shortcake and Her Friends" by Mercedes Llimona
* This doll is already adopted. He was created for my own personal collection.
I have always admired this outfit from the book "The Adventures of Strawberry Shortcake and Her Friends" by Mercedes Llimona. It is so fun to finally have my own Plum Puddin' Boy doll. I have two versions. I'm going to be making outfits for him. I will be making more of these for sale later on. The hat was made a little different that the book version only because I am fond on this specific hat style. The actual hat in the book does not have a brim on the hat. There will be both version of this hat soon, as I plan on making the actual hat for him as well. Hope you like him <3
